Set on the Island of Montreal, the city of Westmount is home to some of Canada’s most affluent neighborhoods.
But Westmount is not only home to wealthy residents. It boasts notable ones as well. The late singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen was born there, and United States Vice President Kamala Harris attended the local high school.
Filled with stately multimillion-dollar houses representing a variety of architectural styles, the area’s tree-lined streets give way to parks and, in some parts, upscale shops and boutiques.
Among the luxury residences now available for purchase in prestigious Upper Westmont, an enclave of large estate homes, is a fully renovated three-story built in 1988.
Arch-topped dormer windows punctuate the stone-and-brick mansion’s mansard roof. Tuscan columns support a semicircular portico, which is flanked by bay windows. Shutters frame the second-level windows.
Attention to detail is evident starting in the central entry hallway with its intricate wooden inlaid floor, crown molding and elegant staircase.
The main level includes two living rooms and two sitting rooms. A cozy wood-clad wet bar sits near a fireplace. Wainscoting adorns the formal dining room. A massive center island anchors the state-of-the-art kitchen.
The kitchen leads to the home’s most unexpected feature, an indoor swimming pool and sunroom. Walls of windows surround the dramatic pool, which is topped by a vaulted glass roof.
Stairs access the two upper levels, which contain a home theater, multiple offices, the primary suite and numerous bedrooms.
The fully finished basement includes a wine cellar, family room and additional bedroom for a total of eight bedrooms and six bathrooms throughout the house. The walk-out basement, which follows the footprint of the levels above, has ample storage and room for a home gym.
There’s garage parking for five vehicles and spots for another three cars on the driveway. Hedges line the landscaped lot, which contains plantings and mature trees.
